I'm very happy to announce that Pontari Productions is making available
our super cheap, sort of cheesy DOF_Blur image filter for LightWave 5.0.
Basically this blurs parts of the image based on their distance from the
camera. It uses NULL objects to aim the focus. It has a more than
passing similarity to Wavefilter's DOF blur with the single exception
that it doesn't do nearly as good a job. But hey what do you want for
about 6 hours worth of work. The binary and more information can be
found on Pontari's Lightwave pages:
The source code to this plugin is also available and makes an excellent
example of how to do LWPanel's, reading NULL object coordinates, and a
few other tricks. Users are welcome to port it to other LightWave
platforms as well.
Note: this is a copyrighted work. We are asking people to not
redistributed it on their own web sites, ftp sites, or CDROM's. Your
welcome to give it to your friends but not to sell it with anything,
especially CDROM compilations. If you wish to distribute it in this way
please ask first.
And while your getting it, you might want to check out Super Glow our
first commercial plugin. Available at a fairly low price it does things
with glow's that will amaze you. A free limited/demo version is
but we will try to fix major problems etc.
